Shelf Edge Labels - What are shelf edge labels?
Definition of SHELF EDGE LABEL:
Labels used in the retail industry to display product, pricing, and promotional information in retail environments or to add stock information to shelving units and racking in storage warehouses.
Also called cards or tickets, these labels are used in retail environments to display information about products and are usually slotted into a data strip (also known as a ticket rail or strip or a scanner rail or strip) or into a shelf barker (also known as shelf talkers).
Shelf edge labels are usually made using thicker materials, such as heavy paper stock or card, and may be made with a standard permanent adhesive, a removable adhesive, a dry peel adhesive, or without an adhesive. Shelf edge labels with a permanent or removable adhesive will usually be stuck onto an insert that slots into the data strip or barker, while labels with a dry peel adhesive or without an adhesive will simply slot into the data strip or barker and can be repositioned or removed as needed.Go Back to Glossary
